That’s some dry spell you got there.

It never ceases to amaze me the number of ways that Tennessee’s current run of futility can be categorized.  Take this:

Tennessee is just 2-28 against ranked opponents since the start of the 2008 season, with wins over a ranked South Carolina team in 2009 and 2013. In that time the Vols have had just one winning season — 7-6 in 2009 — and are 33-41 overall under four different coaches.

Tennessee has not beaten a top-five foe since beating then No. 4-ranked LSU in 2005.

Mike Hamilton was the bomb.

Oh, and good luck in Norman today, fellas.

    Dammit Senator…I had the Vols to cover in the Fabris Pool, but you’ve gone and made me change my pick.

    The noted seer Barner Chuck Oliver was almost calling for a UT upset, but we have few listening choices driving home. I will never forgive him for being a jerk to CMR at the 2012 SEC Championship press conference

    Eternal vigilance must be practiced to keep the lunatic fringe portion of any fanbase at bay, Tennessee failed at that task and are reaping the consequences. At Georgia the most common characteristic of the fringe crowd is unreasoning and irrational criticism of Mike Bobo’s play calling in shootout losses and games where the defense puts the offense in a huge hole by not showing up for the first 6-7 opponents possessions. Another common characteristic is any criticism of Mark Richt with the words “Sunday School” in them. Please urge these malcontents to embrace their inner urnge and join their brethren in Knoxville where they can call the shots.

    Yeah Yeah, winning percentages speak louder than words. Especially against Tech.

    While I love watching the Vols get crushed, I’m not looking forward to hearing Big Game Bob crow about beating an SEC team.
